hi,

I'm planning to buy a long pimples rubber and was wondering what you could suggest. and if it is better or not to use sponge(what's the difference?).. and if yes.. how thick?.. I'm a defender, chopper.. similar to kim kyung ah's style..I suppose. :) suggestion??

In my knowledge, Sir, Lady Kim is using TSP Curl P1r with 0.5mm sponge on her backhand..
TSP Curl P1r is widely known as the mainstay long pimple rubber for like more than a decade now..

For cheaper alternative (yet still a keeper) you might want to try Dawei 388D-1 with 0.5mm sponge too..
It's even cheaper than burger cheap!

For playing more away from the table you might want to use 1.0mm sponge..

For the difference between OX and sponged LPs you might want to see this article, Sir:

Have fun trying!
